BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 29. Jabrayil energy unit
will connect Azerbaijan’s power lines with country’s Nakhchivan and
Turkey, press secretary of Azerenerji OJSC Teymur Abdullayev told
“The foundation of Jabrayil energy hub was laid with the
participation of President Ilham Aliyev, a few days ago. This
project is very important for the country in total, as well as for
Azerbaijan’s liberated territories, because it is an international
energy project,” Abdullayev said.
“First of all, “Aghjabadi” and “Imishli” substations were
expanded and completely reconstructed to implement this project.
High voltage power transmission line (330-kilovolt) will be laid
from the “Aghjabadi” and “Imishli” substations at a distance of 132
and 130 kilometers, respectively, to Jabrayil, and a 330-kilovolt
nodal substation will be built in this area,” he noted.
According to him, there are various important aspects of the
construction of this substation, one of them is that the
integration of “Khudafarin” and “Giz Galasi” Hydroelectric Power
Stations, as well as the “BP Jabrayil” Solar Power Plant into the
energy system will be carried out.
“A 330-kilovolt line will be laid from the Jabrayil energy
junction substation to Nakhchivan at the next stage, which is a
very big event. Nakhchivan has been separated from the common
energy system of Azerbaijan for many years,” press secretary
“Nakhchivan will be connected to the common energy system of
Azerbaijan and a 330-kilovolt substation will be built in
Nakhchivan. Further, an additional conversion substation will be
built in accordance with European energy standards to increase the
330-kilovolt to 400-kilovolt in the vicinity of Nakhchivan,” he
“Then a power transmission line will be laid from Nakhchivan to
Turkey, and the electricity produced in Azerbaijan will be
transferred to other territories of the country. The electricity
produced in Azerbaijan can be transferred to Nakhchivan, Turkey and
Europe,” he added.
